WST & Niels

WST is my company.

I have three distinct qualifications that I believe can benefit your project: 

 

Innovator 

As a positive and creative person, I see possibilities and solutions all around me. I choose to solve complicated tasks and problems with my knowledge from past experience, state of the art concepts, and engagement of all stakeholders  

My force is to transform complicated concepts into local settings and facilitate them in an easy to use language, without compromising on quality   

 

Facilitator 

Stakeholders have many valuably opinions on ‘’how to do things’’.  I respect this, but I would also like to challenge them. They need to prove their ‘case’ and I will review their claims and facilitate a quality solution adapted to the local needs and wants 

 

Lean & Green thinking  

My approach will be based on Lean & Green thinking, merging quality and sustainable development. Lean is a about manufacturing in a different way, to see that quality is an integrated part of the whole process of manufacturing. It is about empowering employees and listening to society in general. Green is about sustainable development, including eco standards and CSR
